Clicking noise on cooktop even when all burners ignite

When i turn on specific burners on my Viking Cooktop, the igniter keeps clicking even after the flame is lit. The only 2 burners that don't have the clicking noise are the simmer burner and the front middle burner. I bought a 6 burner stove but can only cook with 2 burners. Each of the other 4 burners when turned on causes the back middle burner to click click click continuously. Service people have been over multiple times. They fix it for one day and then it goes back to clicking again. Please suggest how to make the clicking noise stop. Thanks, sdparikh

    I have very close to the same problem, only all six burners start clicking as soon as the stovetop is plugged in. I've been lighting all my burners manually for the last two months. Any help would be greatly appriciated. thank guys.

I have a viking gas cooktop. The ignitor on one of my front burners wouldn't stop clicking even after the flame ignited. I swapped that ignitor with the ignitor from a back burner, expecting that the problem was with the ignitor and that the back burner would start to click incessantly, but at least I'd have my favorite front burner for use. Instead, the front burner was then only clicking 50% of the time and the back burner was fine, suggesting the problem was related to the burner not the ignitor. I pulled the front ignitor a bit away from the burner and now it is working normally. Hope this helps.

Viking cooktop gas unit ignition clicks on all burners when I use


Electric gas igniters sometimes get stuck in one position causing a clicking sound. The clicking sound that you hear is the electric arc that is pulsing from the igniter conductor (wire) to ground (the gas burner). It receives power from the electrical outlet that the stove is plugged into.
Residue from food and sometimes cleaning products may be preventing the igniter from producing a spark (Arc) to the base of the burner. This is a common problem that occurs when the stove has been cleaned or food is allowed to build up. Make sure that the igniter and the burner base are clean and dry. This will help with proper operation. Oven cleaner and a small tooth brush may be used to accomplish this. Another problem with ignition may occur if you have too little (touching) or too much space between the igniter and the base of the burner; it will prevent the burner from igniting. You should only have a little more space than the thickness of a nickel between the burner base and the igniter. A good “blue” arc from the igniter to the burner base is optimal. If this doesn’t work, you may need to replace the electric igniter module. Good luck.

Igniter issue - some do not turn on other do not turn off


I would try cleaning the burners. You can purchase cleaning brushes made specifically for this purpose and they work like a charm.
